The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
My husband and I are retired. When moving to Arizona at retirement, we purchased a property that would allow us to have friends & family visit. We love meeting new people. We enjoy staying in Airbnb homes when we travel as it affords us the opportunity to enjoy other people in their own environment. It also allows us to have cooking facilities(we don't eat out that much). We love sharing our home and our favorite things to do with our guests. We also like being able to earn a bit of 'travel money ' at the same time. And, we pay taxes to city, state & government municipalities, which I am all for. Thank you for your time. I hope you can see the benefits too Airbnb!
